Samsung Galaxy Note 5 picks up a code name, new GS6 variant looks likely

The Galaxy Note is Samsung’s flagship platform for trying out new things, and if the rumors are to be believed, this year’s Galaxy Note 5 could sure be a trailblazer in its own right, bringing an insanely high-res ultra HD 3840 x 2160 display to the phablet. But beyond that idea, we haven’t heard a ton about the hardware – maybe an Edge model could return, but it sounds like that new SoC might not be ready in time. We’ve still got months and months to learn more about Samsung’s plans, and today we lay a little ground work, hearing about some model numbers and a code name for not just the Galaxy Note 5, but also a possible new addition to the Galaxy S6 family.

Evidenced has surfaced for a Samsung handset with the model number SM-N920, which would be a logical successor to the Galaxy Note 4’s SM-N910. The phablet is supposed to have the code name Noble, and appears to be in development for networks around the globe.

As for this new GS6 relative, Samsung appears to be working on a model SM-G928, tipped to have the codename Zen. With the 920 and 925 being the GS6 and GS6 Edge, respectively, it would follow that this could be another Galaxy S6 model, but what? We’ve heard of a possible Active edition, but with a very different model number; for now, it’s not clear just what this device might be.
